    Can I ask is it a cast of the original model or a mold of a scratchbuilt ?

    regards

    yeah, the rumor was when ICONS purchased it a mold was taken but the person who made the mold was not allowed to make any pulls. I would love to know if this is a real pull or a scratch made and then molded. I know where the molds are and I know of only one pull so...................... Cool deal. I have some picts I can send you to assist in building it. PM me and I'll did them out.

    I got it off ebay and was told it's casted off a scratchbuilt replica.

    I do enjoy hearing all the comments about the studio model. Unlike George L's models, the Irwin Allen props have been through several hands since the early seventies til Paul Allan snapped them up.
